Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XII. PLURALITY OF WORLDS. Towards the end of 1853 a book was published anonymously entitled, Of the Plurality of Worlds: an Essay. It is an octavo volume; the title and prefatory matter occupy viii pages, and the text 279 pages.

The Dialogue is increased by about half a page, in which a supposed interlocutor designated as AC draws attention to a second article on the Essay which appeared in the Westminster Review. The fourth edition of the Essay was published early in 1855; it consists of xii and 411 pages, and contains a new p...
